Daily intakes of tributyltin (TBT) and triphenyltin (TPT) compounds from meals in Shiga Prefecture, Japan, were Investigated by 2 methods.
Daily intakes of TBT and TPT by the duplicate portion method were, respectively, 4.7 and 0.7 mug in 1991 and 2.2 and 0.7 mug in 1992.
Those by the market basket method were, respectively, 6.9 and 5.4 mug in 1991 and 6.7 and 1.3 mug in 1992.
Daily intakes of TBT and TPT by the market basket method were higher than those by the duplicate portion method.
These values were considerably lower than acceptable daily intakes of 80 mug/50 kg body weight specified by the Welfare Ministry of Japan for bis (tri-n-butyltin) oxide and of 25 mug/50 kg body weight specified by the Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization for TPT.
